MONROE - A Monroe man was released on a signature bond Monday on charges of having sex with a child over the age of 16.

Anthony M. Wiser, 24, appeared in Green County Circuit Court on Monday and was released on a $2,000 signature bond with conditions that he have no contact with the alleged victim, including contact via electronic devices or third-party contact. He was also ordered not to possess or consume controlled substances, nor have any contact with the alleged victim's residence in Blanchardville.

Wiser is charged with a misdemeanor charge of sex with a child over the age of 16 and a Class I felony charge of possession of heroin. The charges stem from an incident that occurred in June 2013.

Court records indicate the mother of the teen called the New Glarus Police Department multiple times in October 2013, saying that Wiser was injecting the victim, who was 17 at the time, with heroin. When interviewed by police the teen, she said she and Wiser had been dating for more than a year starting when she was about 16. The victim said Wiser injected her with heroin multiple times at her request. She also said Wiser never pressured her into doing drugs, and that she and Wiser had been having consensual sex since she was about 16.

A year-long restraining order was filed against Wiser by the victim in October 2013. The injunction was dismissed in January 2014. The victim said she was pressured by a relative into getting the restraining order.

If convicted for the maximum penalty on all charges, Wiser could face up to $20,000 in fines or four years and three months imprisonment or both. Wiser has a preliminary hearing set for April 8.
